As Senior Editor for Reason, a monthly journal covering “politics, culture, and ideas … [and] making a principled case for liberty and individual choice,” Michael Moynihan now sees his reporting appear in numerous forms: print, blogs, video, and more.
“There’s a hunger for material. From a journalism perspective, this creates a problem. We have too many things to do.” But the proliferation of media has this upside: “The only great thing about repressive regimes is they make people incredibly clever about technology,” Moynihan says, crediting such inventiveness for the Twitter phenomenon in Iran. Moynihan spoke with Chris Kenneally as part of a panel discussion on social media at the recent SLA conference.
